Baseball’s opening month is already over and the Dodgers are 14-12 and own a four-game winning streak after beating Philadelphia three straight games this past weekend at the Stadium.
In Sunday’s 5-3 victory, Hyun-Jin Ryu won his first game since August 31, 2014 and was backed by Andrew Toles’ three-run homer in the sixth inning that gave the Boys in Blue a four-run lead.
Ryu (1-4) ventured five and one-third innings, surrendering one run, three hits with nine strikeouts and three walks.
Justin Turner (three hits) had a run-scoring single in the first inning that plated Toles (two hits and two runs), who led off with a double, while Chris Taylor’s solo homer in the second made it 2-1.
On Saturday, the Dodgers scored four runs in the ninth and edged the Phillies, 6-5, as Yasiel Puig, Cody Bellinger (two homers) and Turner clouted back-to-back-to-back homers, and Adrian Gonzalez (two hits) had the game-winning single.
Turner drove in two and had three hits including a double during Friday’s 5-3 triumph over the Phillies.
Kenta Maeda (2-2) took the win after working seven frames, fanning eight and walking one with five hits and two runs.
Ten innings were needed in order for the Dodgers to beat San Francisco 5-1 at AT&T Park on Thursday.
Corey Seager creamed his fifth homer while Enrique Hernandez, Turner, Toles and Taylor all added a run batted in.
The Giants held off the Dodgers 4-3 in 10 frames on Wednesday despite Seager (two hits) belting a home run and Turner getting three hits with a run.
Clayton Kershaw (4-1) gave up six hits in seven innings in a 2-1 win over the Giants on Tuesday and allowed one run with seven strikeouts and one walk.
Puig contributed an RBI single and Gonzalez (double) added an RBI grounder.
On Monday, Matt Cain (2-0) yielded two hits and no runs over six innings in a 2-1 decision while Hunter Pence (two hits) had an RBI and Joe Panik (hit with a run) a sacrifice fly.
